A reminder to a great politician and a symbol of resolve in the eye of totalitarianism. Highly recommend to lookup his part in history.

It's an unusual statue on a bridge. You should read the history or have a guide, because otherwise you just see there a great statue and nothing else.

This monument is on an island in the middle of residential streets. It is eye-catching and a popular photo opportunity.

We weren't seeking this statue out but it is well done. Peaceful friendly look on the face on a bridge under a tree. That's one of the runt things about this town is the opt up statues and monuments
